Types of Fish in Daytona Beach

These are a few of the fish you can catch on your fishing trip to Daytona Beach.

Panfish

This general term describes a number of different species like spotted sunfish, bluegill, redbreast sunfish, sunfish, or warmouth. These fish can be good targets for many young anglers who are using worms, popping bugs, and spinnerbaits.

Grouper

This is the generic name for several deepwater bottom-dwellers that are important to both recreational and commercial fishermen. Red grouper and gag grouper are most popular with anglers. During the cooler months, they can be caught in shallow water by trolling artificial lures.

Snapper

Red snapper is pink to red in color, and its pointed anal fin distinguishes it from other types of snapper. Red snapper is considered one of the best fish to eat out of all of the species found in the waters around Daytona Beach.

Daytona Beach, Florida Fishing Seasons

The subtropical climate of central Florida is best enjoyed in the spring before temperatures get too hot and before the rainy season.
